Wigan sits right in the heart of England’s North West, surrounded by towns synonymous with the industrial golden age: Warrington, St Helens, Bolton and Chorley, with Manchester and Liverpool just over the horizon. Wigan’s particular trades were pottery, clock making, mills and coal mining, and they in turn led to the canals coming, and eventually the railway. Most of that industry is gone now, but there’s still a huge Heinz food factory, and the bookmaker Tote has its headquarters here, among other thriving industries. There’s still a busy shopping area for the locals, too, and the town is well known for its nightlife.

The town is famed around the world for three things: pies (everyone here loves them); Wigan Warriors (easily England’s most successful rugby league club); and George Orwell's 1937 book The Road to Wigan Pier, which documented the lifestyles of the workers of this and other Northern towns. The West Coast Mainline runs straight through the middle of the town on the Bolton and Warrington branch, making it a perfect place to live for commuters to either town, plus Liverpool and Manchester.
